data |
A vector of reals. If all are <=1, it is assumed that this is a vector of P-values, else it is treated as a vector of chi-squares |
plot |
Whether the plot should be shown or not (default). |
proportion |
The proportion of lowest P (or chi^2) values to be used when estimating the inflation factor lambda. |
method |
"regression" (default), "median", or "KS": method to be used for lambda estimation. |
filter |
if the test statistics with 0-value of chi^2 should be excluded prior to estimation of lambda. |
df |
Number of degrees of freedom. |

arguments passed to the |
Estimate the inflation factor for a distribution of P-values or 1df chi-square test. The major use of this procedure is the Genomic Control, but can also be used to visualise the distribution of P-values coming from other tests. Methods implemented include 'median' (median(chi2)/0.455...), regression (of observed onto expected) and 'KS' (optimizing the chi2.1df distribution fit by use of Kolmogorov-Smirnov test)
